O.K. Guys some how I have caught myself into some kind of dilema. So here it goes. I bought my (beautiful) wife a new charger on the first of july (an sxt with R/T wheels,leather,roof and sirrus (silver steel beautiful) and I agreed to sell my cobra. So I did and now I have extra cash. The $ was supposed to go to a S3 kit for my srt-4 but to be honest now I want a charger. Well in about 3-4 weeks (hopefully its in D1 status) a daytona is coming in and I have had serious thoughts about that one, infact my name is on it. But I love black and I thought about just an R/T with pp package. It would save me around $2500 because the daytona has stuff I really dont want (nav radio,sirrus,roof and evic). So options

1. Stay w/ srt-4 and buy S3 and be a fast nean! (cnd cheaper note)
2. Buy the Daytona (wife wants believe it or not)
3. Buy R/T w/ PP package and save money of Daytona (but not have a colletor)

What would you do?!?!?!?!

I would take number 3.

srt-4's alright, just not the same without an eight under the dress

I don't like any of the Daytona colors

I was you just get the R/T in the color and options you like.

owe and save money!!!

Go with the black Charger R/T with the performance package. In the end you will be more happy because it's a color you really want, and it will have saved you a nice chunk of change in the meantime. Perhaps a nice vacation for you and your "beautiful" wife??? Just food for thought! But I would pass up the Daytona's myself in favore of a regular Charger R/T with the PP.

I completely agree. I've never been a fan of the Daytona colors so when I found out I could get almost everything with the PP I ordered it. If there are specific options on the Daytona that you like (black grille), you can almost certainly add those for less than the $2500 you're saving.

Well I like the daytona Go Mango color better then the stock R/T colors... and after seeing a Daytona in person... I will say that anyone who buys one will not be disappointed... the car looks sharp, and for some reason... it looks like a totally different car then the normal R/T.

Back when I was placing my order I was going back and forth with a black R/T and a Go ManGo daytona... in the end I decided that since every time I see the Daytona on TV or on the web... alittle voice inside keeps telling me that that is what I want..... and sitting on my orders for over a month, I will say that I have not changed my mind....

Go with what you think you will be happier with in the long run, as you dont want a month or a year to go buy, and think... "I should have gotten the other color."

That same "little voice" keeps me up at night pondering mods and the day I get to see my car in person!

LOL!!

Here's your vote for the Stage 3 kit:) Wasn't for that, I could save a wad of cash and get a R/T with performance package. But noooo, now I gotta get an SRT, nothing less than what I have will do.

Quite honestly, I would have both the Charger and the Stage 3 SRT-4 if I could. A Stage 3 car is something you really have to experience, 22psi just GOES!!!!! :rockon:

Whats there to tell? She drives like a normal SRT til you go past half throttle. Then the demon wakes up. :) Automobile magazine said.....

"Instead, carefully engage the notchy first gear without touching the throttle to get the car rolling.

The next few seconds change your life. ...":)

And they really do. The power at your command quickly becomes addictive:) Coming over the mountians in KY is a hoot. Flooring it and accellerating UP the mountain is a blast.

Well I think I am in a pretty good position to help you. Here are the reason's why I think that.
A.) I have a stg-3 2004 Black SRT-4 (our favorite color)
B.) I recently bought a Black Charger R/T (our favorite color) for my wife
C.) I too and am signed up for the track even in Ennis on the 20th and plan on being they in my SRT-4 which I will let you drive after I see you drive on the tack. hehe

Seriously though if your into performance keep your SRT-4. I make more HP and Torque with my SRT-4 than my Hemi Charger and it is 1100 pounds lighter. Doesn't take a scientist to figure out which is quicker. One of each is how I went and what I would recommend for you.

Well I am into performance (bad) and I just sold my cobra and have a little over $6000 to spend. So I was considering the Daytona coming in or awhole lot of goodies for srt! I am aslo going in my srt so that should be fun. hehe. Just riding in yours should help me better judge my decision, so thanks in advance.
